Orange Beacons of Light

Happy Thursday, blog world!I could not get out of bed this morning.  We put one of our landline phones in our bedroom last night and apparently it decided we had a new voicemail at some point during the night and started flashing the largest orange beacon of light about the room.  It was like it was signaling a UFO landing.

I first tried to cover it up with a magazine then threw it under the bed. 

I don’t think we need a phone in our room that badly.

You would think I would have been pretty wide-awake after all that, but I managed to fall back asleep and my body was determined to get my normal 8 hours despite my alarm going off for nearly 2 hours (sorry, honey!).

Look what I found at my Starbucks this morning!


Everytime I snatch one of these, I keep thinking it will be my last.  Now I”m quite positive that Starbucks released the news that they would be discontinued to boost sales.

I asked my barista how old these were (since I’ve seen 4 in the basket at the cash register every day this week) and she said they received them today.  What!??  So are they really going to be discontinued?

I’ll say it again:  I think this is all a conspiracy to boost sales.  But I’m sure going to be disappointed when/if they are discontinued. 


I’ve seen quite a few bloggers reusing food containers for bowls lately and I really like the idea.   I should claim that it is for green reasons, but it’s actually out of laziness.  Nice not to have to wash another container or dirty a spoon portioning it out!

I had about half a cup of plain Oikos leftover, so I piled about a cup of blueberries and 3 T. of walnuts into the nearly empty container.  It worked well!  I’ll definitely be doing this again soon.

I have a pretty bad headache and my throat is starting to hut… ugh.  Hope I am not getting sick.  😦
